So, right up front I have to address the weather. Yes- the weather. We Mid-Westerners always seem to start out conversations with chatter about the recent weather, but in this case, it really has some bearing on how the ShockStop Pro Seat Post worked for me.
The Roval Terra Carbon post has a definite smoothing effect upon the ride, if you have a fair amount of seat post extension with the bicycle you install it in. The compliance is there, but so is a perceptible amount of vibration reduction coming up through the saddle.
MG called the ShockStop seat post a ‘game changer’, and I would agree. It hits all points: Good looking, effective, and easily set up. If you’ve been shying away from riding gravel due to the roughness and vibrations, get the Redshift ShockStop post and match it with a ShockStop stem. You’ll be amazed at what control and comfort that set up will give you. Game changer indeed.
I believe the Kinekt post was an essential component to my DKXL finish, and it performed flawlessly throughout the event. The post let me stay seated through a wider range of conditions and substantially muted the vibration and bumps reaching my posterior.
